Keeping your Knives Sharp
Having a good knife is essential, and keeping is sharp is more important than you might think.
To get the most out of your kitchen knife, it will need to be maintained regularly.

Shouldn't a good knife stay sharp?
There is a lot you can do to minimize wear on your blades. From choosing the right cutting board to using the right knife for the right job. Never the less every blade gets dull eventually and needs to be sharpened. One of the best options to do this yourself is a good wet-stone and a good leather strop.
